Bird of the week - Goldfinch

Carduelis carduelis, meaning thistle finch.  In truth they could feature in this spot any week as they are here in the garden all the year round.  A few photos from this week in Autumn sunshine.  Females (first four, perhaps) and males (last four, perhaps).  Telling males from females in the field or in photos isn't easy (see here).
